Not everyone can be a scientist. But that doesn’t mean that the rest of us can’t be interested in stories that have a scientific angle to them. Sci-fi is one of the most popular genres today, and various storytellers have told fascinating tales by twisting the concepts of space and time. It gives the storyteller the freedom to think of the impossible. There have been ground breaking sci-fi movies throughout the history of cinema.
Movies like 2001 A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Alien, The Matrix, The Terminator etc. have set up high standards. The immense success of these films has encouraged the filmmakers to experiment further, by introducing more complicated subject matters to the audience. The acclaim amassed by films like ‘Arrival’ have proved that sci-fi isn’t just something to dazzle the audience with while making money in the process. These stories can be riveting, exciting and emotionally saturated, at the same time. The future is jam-packed with sci-fi movies, so fans of the genre should ready themselves to be introduced to some amazing new stories and pack their (imaginary!) bags to venture into new places.
Every year new sci-fi movies with original ideas or stories adapted from a book are being released. There are so many exciting projects coming up, like the adaptation of Ernest Cline’s novel ‘Armada’, and two more follow-ups in works for ‘Avatar’. With a couple of remakes, some sequels and the adaptations of some electrifying novels, here is the list of upcoming science fiction movies (new releases) that one should keep an eye on. We hope these latest sci-fi movies are as good as some of the recent ones.
16. Hellboy (2019)
The news of Hellboy getting rebooted with a new cast without Ron Perlman caused a minor uproar among fans. But it was calmed down later when it was announced that ‘Stranger Things’ actor David Harbour was cast in the titular role. The film will be directed by Neil Marshall. The film also stars Ian McShane, Milla Jovovich and Sasha Lane. The production on the film has begun and the film has an official release date of 12th April, 2019. Hope we get to see the fan favorite hero back on the big screen in an amazing manner.
